USC Catalog

In addition to analyzing and studying the evolution of new services, one of the USC Observatory’s aims is to keep the USC solutions catalog updated.

The USC incorporates a chip which stores information about its holder, so enabling him or her to make use of a wide range of services which would have been inconceivable in earlier systems. These include the possibility of storing the user’s electronic certification within the card.  

The card also incorporates a proximity chip.  As well as offering many other services from all administrations, the USC serves to control access to car parks, to make bookings and enquiries, and in general to access university information in a safe and authenticated manner.
